Playlist 250 - Jan 22 2013

The new music of 2013 is starting to filter through.

This week we had more from the new Yo La Tengo album, Fade, in the shape of the sublime brass-laden drone of ‘Cornelia & Jane’, sung by Georgia Hubley; a tremendous sea-shanty from The Doomed Bird of Providence, part of their contribution to Collision/Detection v7 (more on that in recent posts); some genuinely affecting shoegaze from Apparat; and an upcoming new single from Cat Power, ‘Manhattan’, which has a great piano with drum machine motif.

We also had a new tune from Best Boy Grip from Derry, a brilliantly bouncy power pop put down - and it features brass.

There was also an Efterklang re-release on Leaf, a beautiful "oldie" from Luna, a surf pop ballad from Cork's Saint Yorda, some very tuneful thrashing from Ty Segall, likewise from Dublin's Lie Ins whose new album comes out in a couple of weeks, and some great wobbly bass from Daphni (Dan Snaith/Caribou).

And from Perth, the new Apricot Rail single (pictured). No brass here but there is flute, duetting with clear as crystal electric guitar, a lovely, uplifting, skittering effect.
